In the post I did on Antonio Berardi, SJ Kurtz of http://erniekdesigns.blogspot.com/ left a comment and told me about the wonderful production of The Marriage of Figaro that the Seattle Opera is doing. The video is just a little over 2 minutes in length, and WELL worth the time. Many of the costumes have been created with repurposed denim. Be sure to take note of the cuffs that were made with repurposed denim pockets, and the sweet corselette made from the seat of a pair of denim pants.Incredible!
Not that the video isn't plenty of inspiration, but I thought I would tack on a little more :)
Not too sure about the epaulets, but I do like the coat, especially the quilted bottom panel.
What a great piece, patchwork, but modern.
This is from the Yves St. Laurent Spring 2016 collection. Once again, I like the patchwork. Not too crazy about the frayed hem.
Gucci 2015 Spring collection. Pretty cutwork.
Over the top with Alexander McQueen!
Roberto CavalliFabulous work.
Beautiful blouse from Madeleine, Fall 2014 Could possibly be re-created with lightweight denim bandannas.When I initially saw this photo, I thought skirt. It was a small picture. Then I took a closer look and realized that it's a picture of hanging shirts. Somehow, I think this could translate into an interesting design.
From Fendi. Love the little cropped jacket.
This is a little something from the, "interesting, but I'm not sure" file.
Denim lends itself to incredible embellishment possibilities. Below is a quilt, but I thought it would make an interesting panel on a jacket.
More embellishment ideas.
And finally, a little fun with scraps. Don't throw any denim away!!!
Denim has become a mainstay of our wardrobes, and rightfully so. It's durable and so easy to care for.
I've had a lot of fun putting together today's little post. Hope it's been inspiring!
